On February 13, 2012, representatives from various stakeholder groups, including community members, parents, teachers, classified staff, administrators, students and the Board of Trustees, met to discuss district needs, goals and next steps. On March 6th, the Board adopted the attached 2012 - 2015 Strategic Plan . The following three key goals will be used to guide the district's work over the next three years:
- Make learning more engaging, relevant and effective with options for students.
- Provide a stimulating working and learning environment for students and staff.
- Increase student connectedness within the school and with the broader local and world communities.
The results are in from the survey conducted on behalf of the district by EMC Research - thank you to all of you who participated. The survey was conducted to provide the district and the Board of Trustees with information about areas of strength, areas of need, and potential focus areas - especially as we move toward developing a new Strategic Plan this fall.
At the May 12th meeting of the Board of Trustees, EMC presented an overview of the data - which indicates an overall satisfaction with academics, support for students, programs and extra curricular activities. It did affirm that students feel stress - a focus area for the district now and moving forward. The data is extensive and will be analyzed in depth during future discussions, often with a focus on a particular area. Tonight's presentation is designed as an overview and is, by no means, a complete analysis.
